What is Hyperhidrosis?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition where an excessive amount of sweating is present in areas such as the underarms and hands. This condition can be embarrassing and lead to a decrease in self esteem and productivity. Hyperhidrosis can be effectively treated with BOTOX® when injected into the affected areas, and result in a substantial decrease and cessation of sweat production. Many insurance companies cover some or all of the treatment cost, as Hyperhidrosis is recognized as a medical condition that can be relieved with treatment. The effects of the treatment last 7-9 months.
